Our Fun Fall Patterns includes three separate sets of patterning cards and five different assessments. The materials included will make differentiation easy for your cooperative groups. Children will have the opportunity to create, extend, name, and identify patterns. The cute graphics are perfect to help keep children engaged in their learning. 

There are pattern labels and cards for children to create nine different patterns. Two of the three sets included have color coded  pieces. For example: the cards with the red outline will only be used for the pattern card with the matching color (AB).

You can have your groups work to create one pattern at a time or let them work together to create all the patterns and lay them out for easy checking and discussion as you circulate among groups.

These pattern cards are a great way to get the children talking! Each pattern set includes trick cards the children need to look out for while they are working together to build the patterns. These cards are also great for problem solving. Since they are limited to the cards with the same color border, they need to problem solve the best way to build the pattern. Here are two different groups working on the same pattern, but have a different result:

The third set of patterns is not color coded so children have the choice to pick the pictures they want to build each pattern to match the pattern name. These also make a perfect center!

We have also included several assessments in this pack. 
"Name That Pattern!" is a great way to assess children's understanding of naming patterns. They are to look at the pattern that is shown and figure out it's name. They will write the pattern name in the line provided. We like to have our children color the pattern also.

"Fantastic Fall Patterns" is another way for children to show their knowledge of pattern names. Children are to look at the completed pattern and then circle the correct pattern name from the choices given. Again, we like our children to color the patterns.

"Fabulous Fall Patterns" provides children with pictures that are the same for each pattern. Their job is to color them to show the pattern that is named.

"Fun Fall Patterns" is a great way for children to problem solve to extend the pattern shown. They should look at the beginning of the pattern and then decide which picture goes next in the sequence. 

"Perfect Patterns" allows children to create their own patterns.

We hope you enjoy our Fun Fall Patterns! Our children had a great time working together in their cooperative groups and figuring out each pattern. They even had fun trying to figure out what our "tricks" were. Have a great week!!

Markdown Monday Linky Party! (October 19th - 23rd)

This week we are featuring:
It is 50% off!
Click on the picture above to check it out in our store.

The pack has 24 pages of retelling, writing, and match activities to go along with this fun book for you to use in your classroom. We hope you love it!

We have a color copy of the old lady in the pack as well as a reproducible one for students to color.

After your students color, cut out the stomach and the mouth and then laminate. After she is laminated, cut the laminating out of her mouth and then attach another piece of card stock on the back and staple together. This makes her belly see-through so you can see the pieces as you feed her.

Here is a child coloring her old lady:

We also have color and reproducible copies of the objects the lady eats in the story.


Here a child is looking back in the book so she colors her pictures the right color.

After examining the book, she gets to work!
Now the old lady is ready to eat!

The children retell the story by sequencing the items she eats while they feed them to the lady. They think it's hilarious that they can feed her and see the pictures in her belly!



The children love to tell the story together or take turns being the storyteller. We like to put our color copies in our reading center for more fun practice later so the children can bring their own ladies home with them.


As a follow-up to the book we have included three journal options to go along with this story. (Why did the old lady swallow some leaves? What do you think the old lady will swallow next? What was  your favorite part of the story?)

This pack also includes a math lesson on data collection and graphing of leaves. There is an exploration of matching tally marks to a set. We like to put our children into groups and give them time to explore the cards and discuss what we might be learning about today. We love to walk around and hear the math vocabulary they are using and how they encourage each other! 
The next part of the lesson is to be used for modeling. We cut out clipart of different colors of leaves. We like to put a string on them and have children put them around their necks. We tell them they are now beautiful fall leaves!
We then sort the children into different groups based on what color leaf they have around their neck. The children giggle as they are being moved around and placed into their different groups.
Now that they are all sorted, what should we do now? Let's count how many of each color we have and record our answers using tally marks. 
We have included questions for you to display and ask the children about the data you collected on the leaves.
Now it's the children's turn to put their knowledge to the test and collect their own data. We have included clipart of different types of leaves (maple, oak, beech) for you to scatter around your room. 

Tell children they are going on a leaf hunt around the room. Give them their data collection sheet (pictured below) and let them go! Tell them to make a tally mark for each leaf they find. 

Lastly, children will record their data onto a graph.

Thanks for stopping by to visit us today. We hope you have enjoyed reading about our product for The Little Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves. Have a great week!

Counting on Candy Corn includes math materials for teaching addition with sums up to 10. This activity uses ten frames with pictures to enhance children's understanding of addition. We have included materials for modeling, cooperative group practice, individual assessments, and a follow-up center activity. We have also included different levels of materials for finding sums, writing the whole equation, and finding the missing addend. Read on to get a look into this fun and engaging activity using the very adorable candy corn clipart from Scrappin' Doodles.

Children will look at the candy corn shown on the ten frame to find the sum of the equation provided. Children can use a dry erase marker to write the answer.


These ten frames show two different sets of candy corn dressed up and ready for Halloween. Children are to write the equation that matches the picture shown. 

Here the children need to figure out the missing addend in the equation. You can use counters, candy corn erasers, real candy corn, or anything else you have available for the children to use to help them accomplish this task. They will fill the missing addend with a dry erase marker. 

You can use these cards in so many different ways. You can differentiate your groups by giving one group the finding sums cards, while another group uses the writing equations cards, and one group has the missing addend cards. You could also give each group a sampling of each of the cards in order to practice all of the ways shown.
We have included three different assessments for you to use to meet the needs of your students. Each one is two pages which we copy back to back. You can use them to check for understanding, for reteaching in a small group setting, or even for homework!




We like to use real candy corn while making different combinations to make a sum. The children love the added bonus of getting to eat them when we are done! You can also use candy corn erasers, counters, or anything else you would like to use! We have included two different ten frame mats for you to choose from and a recording sheet too.

The first mat is your basic ten frame. Children can use this mat to count objects, make sets, add with sets of ten or less, or anything else you choose. 

The second mat includes a place for the children to write the equation with a dry eraser marker after they have been laminated. 

The next ten frame can act as an assessment or recording sheet. The children can use the ten frame on the paper to build their equations and then record them in the spaces provided below.


Our children love this center! 
Children will match the top and middle sections of the candy corn by placing the correct numeral over the set shown. They will then add to solve each equation. We have included a recording sheet also. Children will record the equation next to the picture that matches their completed card. 


We hope you enjoy our Counting On Candy Corn activities!
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

Our "Colors All Around" pack is full of books and activities that focus on different colors while also providing lots of practice on early reading strategies and fine motor skills. We love teaching these color activities in our classrooms. We focus on one color a day and have the children wear that color to add to the fun! We also choose a read aloud that coordinates with that color!

In this pack we have included a reproducible paint palette for you to run copies of the palettes on different colors of construction paper. You will also find clipart to go with each color that the children will color, cut out, and glue onto their paint palette. Clipart is included for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, pink, white, and black. We also run off an extra black paint palette that we use as the cover of the book.

Wow! So many useful skills packed into one activity. There is a book and interactive picture clue pieces for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, pink, white, and black. Each book has a predictable text pattern with a variety of sight words for beginning readers. We have a lot of fun learning new words, putting our book together, and reading to a friend!
